Anna university all semester examination books and study material can be accessed through below link. Feel free search for different subject books and authors. The link will provide both local and foreign author books for references. Share the page with friends and college students as required.
• Anna University Books GATE:
GATE papers can be a good practice for any competitive technical exams like DRDO, ISRO, REC, BEL, BHEL, GAIL, ONGC, IOC, NTPC, NHPC etc. As candidates we can prepare for GATE exams and try solving the papers for getting good score in other entrance examinations.

MA6566 DISCRETE MATHEMATICS
OBJECTIVES:
To extend student‟s Logical and Mathematical maturity and ability to deal with abstraction and to introduce most of the basic terminologies used in computer science courses and application of ideas to solve practical problems.

UNIT I LOGIC AND PROOFS 9+3
Propositional Logic – Propositional equivalences – Predicates and Quantifiers – Nested Quantifiers – Rules of inference – Introduction to proofs – Proof methods and strategy.

UNIT II COMBINATORICS 9+3
Mathematical induction – Strong induction and well ordering – The basics of counting – The pigeonhole principle – Permutations and combinations – Recurrence relations – Solving linear recurrence relations – Generating functions – Inclusion and exclusion principle and its applications.

UNIT III GRAPHS 9+3
Graphs and graph models – Graph terminology and special types of graphs – Matrix representation of graphs and graph isomorphism – Connectivity – Euler and Hamilton paths.

UNIT IV ALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES 9+3
Algebraic systems – Semi groups and monoids – Groups – Subgroups – Homomorphism‟s – Normal subgroup and cosets – Lagrange‟s theorem – Definitions and examples of Rings and Fields.

UNIT V LATTICES AND BOOLEAN ALGEBRA 9+3
Partial ordering – Posets – Lattices as posets – Properties of lattices – Lattices as algebraic systems – Sub lattices – Direct product and homomorphism – Some special lattices – Boolean algebra.

TOTAL (L: 45+T:15): 60 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:
At the end of the course, students would:
  Have knowledge of the concepts needed to test the logic of a program.
  Have an understanding in identifying structures on many levels.
  Be aware of a class of functions which transform a finite set into another finite set which relates to input and output functions in computer science.
  Be aware of the counting principles.
  Be exposed to concepts and properties of algebraic structures such as groups, rings and fields.
